About the Company

Once a dominant brand on the Scottish soft drink scene, Bon Accord was a household name and loved by many. Now, four generations on, the company has been revived and reimagined for modern day consumers.

Bon Accord Soft Drinks is an exciting and dynamic (re)start-up company looking for the third member of their growing team. They are all about people and relationships and are currently looking for a hands-on Brand Development Exec to build relationships with current customers, and establish new ones. Must have a get-up-and-go attitude.

• Involved in the day-to-day running of the business

• Market research studies to further develop market/sales opportunities, identify the best venues (bars/restaurants/café’s/deli’s) in each city across Scotland, group by region
